Republican County Convention.
The Republican County Conven
tion met last Saturday, and with a
unanimity which must have been re
freshing to the candidates nominated,
placed their ticket in the field. It was
a curions sight to see so many anxious
"patriots," sitting like cormorants on
tho "ragged edge" of anxiety, hoping
that by the partiality of their fellow
citizens they might before the set of
sun, be able to lay their hands on their
breasts, and with a profound bow
thank the mcmbors of that august
body for tho honor conferred upon
them, l'oor fellows ! Many of them
failed to comprehend the situation
until it was too late. Soino who in
tended to withdraw after a ballot
should disclose that they lacked the
necessary strength to hope for suc
cess, found that the slate had been so
carefully made up, that a single bal
lot, by overwhelming odds indicated
tho selection of the Ring Masters, and
left them uo alternative but indiscrim
inate slaughter. The seductive voi;e
of flattery had been used on some
whom tho leaders feared might not
vote the ticket, and they were tolled
into the net and pledged themselves,
then without the courtesy of a com
plimentary vote, were consigned to
private life I It was the old trick of
Convention managers over again.
Men like W. B. Tizzard, who have
spent tho flush of youth and "borne
the burdens of former campaigns" in
zealous labor for the party, at the
crack of the whip or nod of the Eixg
steiis, . wero swept aside as so much
rubbish. The "rural districts" fared
as usual. Look at the ticket:
Representative Dr. Wm. Saylcr,
Auditor J. Oldfathcr, Grocer,
Eaton. S. S. Dix, Ticket Agent,
Law vcr, Eaton.
Col. A. L. Harris,
Clerk of Court Dr. O. E. Tilson.
Prosecnling Attorney I. E. Free
man, Lawyer, Eaton.
County CoKniissioner Jos. Mills,
County Surveyor J. V. Acton.
Eaton. " . . ,
The Grangers are expected to vote,
not hold office. Sturdy farmers, sa
lute your brethren upon the ticket.
Antlyz3 the material of tho Conven
tion a little, and see if you could ex
pect anything more. Washington
township affords a fair illustration.
Her ticket of Delegates was gotten up
by a committee of one, and twelve
out of the fourteen were citizens of
Eaton I Oh, the people ! the dear
people ! How they do manage the
Conventions when the Ring-masters
shape up the delegates and dictate the
ticket? Strike out the delegates from
the towns of our county, and you can
see at a glance why the laboring man,
tho "bone and sinew," the strength of
population wasignorcd. At the dic
tation of the Clique, we are informed
by some of the defeated candidates,
whole townships which were pledged
to them, at once turned their hacks to
them and allowed them lo be slaugh
tered. AVe were shown long before
a vote was taken, the county ticket as
it would be after tho Convention.
While the Convention wa3 in session,
it was known who would he nomi
nated on the first ballot. Men like
Dougherty, Ortt, Tizzard, Dr. Keller,
Wm. Jefferson, B. C. Bcall, S. n.
Hubbell, Peter Siler and Dr. Bruce do
not let their names stand in the col
umn of announcements for a high of
fice, week alter week, without en
couragement from the managers of
the party. Craig, 'Akcr, Dan Peters,
Frazer, and others, might just as well
havo been set up for scare crows in a
corn field, as candidates for offi?e in
the political field, so far as sny chances
of political advancement were con
cerned. Dougherty received 24 votes,
Ortt 15, Tizzard 3, Keller 6, Jefferson
12, Beall 11, Hubbell 1, M. F. Ste
phens 3, Peter Siler 2, Dr. Bruce 1,
ami t razer 0 ! It was known to a few
outsiders before any balloting was
had, that Peters would be slaughter
ed on . the first ballot. We knew it
the day before I I. E. Craig was dis
missed with 37 votes, and Akcr snub-
ueu hi u ii i nuat nave me suc
cessful candidates done to merit suc
cess over old and valued citizens, who
have in every particular contributed
to the material development and pros
perity of our county ? The ticket is
composed of Crusaders, with proba
bly one exception. The absence of
the foreign element in tho Conven
tion was made more conspicious by
the single exception there, and shows
that the Patriotic Sons of America,
and the Crusaders are hand in hand
in this campaign. It Was this combi
nation "which defeated Sturm as a
delegate and saved Tlmm bv his ro-
newiug his allegiance to tho Crusad
ers and the Patriotic Sons of Atncr

which would jump between the up
per and nether millstones the Sons
of America, who recommend no for

and the Crusaders who take the hy

a glass of beer.

Another soldier of the war of 1S12,
struck from the "Rolls." Adam WniTE,
a pensioned soldier of the wnr of 1S12,
died, with the ii firmities of age, at the
residence of his son, Rich nrd, in Gasper
lownsinp. t reble co. o., on the iiiu
of .Inly, li ;, aged 8; years and 17 days.
The deceased was born in Westmore
land Co., Pcnu., July 10th 1790. In
youth, lie, with his parents, moved to
the Shenadoah valley and thence to
Comphcll Co., West Virginia; where,
in ISIS he married rermelia l owers;
previous to which he served a "term of
(lutv in the war of 1S12, at .NortolK,
Va., and there detailed for hospital dur
ty, during the prevalence of the yellow
fever, so fatal nt that place. In 1832,
the deceased left his Virginia borne set
tled iu this county, and pursued his
avocation of milling, at Potterf's and
Jiarncts mills m til 1840. The uual
wear of the physical powers of a miller,
incident to the" handling of ponderous
sacks of grain, in common use then but
now supplanted by machinery, induced
the necessity of abandoning his trade.
The subject f this note, attached him
self, ss did his wife, to the Christian
Church at "Bank Spring" some thirty
years since, under the n inistry of
Elder Jmes Xeal, who also oflieiated
at the funeral riu-s rf deceased at An
tinch, where the remains were interred.
Fi ther White continued in the even
tenor of his prayerful ways, and died as
he had lived, at peace with the world
and his Redeemer; leaving as mourn
ers, the aged companion of his youth,
prostrate with mental and physical de
bility, six surviving children of nine,
and a large eircfe of sympathizing
neighbors and f iends.
The deceased in all his struggles, in
adversity or prosperity was reconciled
to his late, continuing to live up to the
general moral standard as taught and
practiced by our anec-try in the earlier
days of our Nation's history: thus leav
ing to his children an inheritance more
precious than lands and tenements "a
good name." A geneons hearted neigh
